Re: 1930's Paramount Archtop

Kevin,
I also have a paramount guitar from the 30's. I believe my guitar is from the first year of the Paramount banjo Co. Change over to guitars. The serial number is 224 so I believe the company made this in the first year of guitar production witch was 1934.
This information I found on the net. I do have photo's of the guitar. It's all rosewood and has a second sound chamber inside that is round and can be veiwed through the f-holes. the guitar also came with original string packages from the 30's.

kramer guitar

how do I change the tremmlo system, so that I can use a different string guage, than what it is set for?

Re: kramer guitar

You can use any string gauge you want, just put em on, whats the problem ?? If it has a floyd you'll just need to readjust the tension and intonation.

Ibanez GB-10

Hi I got a 1978 GB-10 serial number J784387 Head stock production number is 0662 on the inside sticker
any Idea what it might be worth ? the guitar is in excellent condition all original.

Re: Ibanez GB-10

Depends if it´s japanese or korean.
I have a korean GB-10, don´t know year of made.
I guess mi guitar is about 1500 us Dollars
A japanese one might be around 1800-2200.
Year 1978: i don´t really know if there is something special with that year on that guitar.

Re: Ibanez GB-10

They didn't make the Korean version of the GB-10 before 1980. Check your serial numbers. the first and the third represent the year. I have a 1981.

Yairi Classical...what do you think?

I have a guitar from when I was a kid...bought it for 10 bucks. Any thoughts on its market value would be great.

Label Reads...

Yairi
Made in Japan
Stamped with the number 270
No. 88
AD 1969 (year made...I got this one)
Signed by Saduo Yairi.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Yairi Classical...what do you think?

I hope I don't disappoint you but a 30-year old Yairi classical guitar cannot be worth more than $100 today. They are a good student guitar but that's about it.

Re: Yairi Classical...what do you think?

I beg to differ. From my experience both S.Yairi and K.Yairi guitars are considered to be fine quality instruments and a 30yr old one should be worth much more than $100.

rotoverb too

i wonder ? if logic research labs in fullerton,calif. is still around and how might i go about getting my rotoverb fixed? hank

Re: rotoverb too

Hank,

I also own a Rotoverb (Logic Research), and mine flaked-out years ago. But it sounded GREAT before it died. I hear the guitar, but I get no rotary action whatsoever. The numbers on the IC chips are too faded for anyone to read.

Have you had any luck getting yours repaired?

Thanks!

Mike

: i wonder ? if logic research labs in fullerton,calif. is still around and how might i go about getting my rotoverb fixed? hank

Re: rotoverb too, I know a good tech!

Yes I know a very good tech who fixed perfectly a Rotoverb. But he lives in Italy, so I don't know if you would send yours over here.
The Rotoverb is back to life and it's on his way to his owner to Texas, right while I am writing.

Re: I have a Rotoverb too

Also made by Research Labs, it powers up but I get no sound. all 4 footswitches turn on the LEDs. Anybody know where I can get it fixed - in Boston Mass.

Which acoustic pickup shoud I choose??

I am looking for some sound advice concerning my choice of acuostic pickups. I have a mid/low end guitar that sound good to me. I also have a great acoustic amp (Roland Brown model). I am looking for a pickup that allows me to play loud with little or no feedback (I can wish can't I?) and sounds decent. I would like to do this for under 200.00 if possible. Thanks in advance for your advice. Richard

Re: Which acoustic pickup shoud I choose??

The undisputed champ for those using acoustic guitars at high spl's and wanting to avoid feedback is the Sunrise p/u as used by Bono, Leo Kottke, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and many others. I personally have used mine for almost seven years now. You MUST get the p/u AND the solid state preamp for the "Sunrise" sound. BUT, it will run you about $300.00 - worth every cent. Jim makes 1000 units every year and they go quickly. Check out the Sunrise website for more info. God bless, Stan

BUZZ NOISE

I got a new Ibanez PGM guitar, on fret from 1,2,3 the low E string to A,D,G,B, high E string. when I play my guitar with out plug into the amp I heard these buzz noise but when I plug it into the amp I don't hear NO buzz noise or hear NO dead fret. why do it make that buzz noise ? if you can help me than do email me ! thanks

Re: BUZZ NOISE

If the 'buzz' is up the neck (1st fret(s)) it probally isn't 'strong' enough to get picked up, why you hear it unplugged... just dress up the fret if it's the problem or raise the action a little till it goes away.

Yamaki Guitar for sale? Anyone have one?

Hi,
Anyone out there have a nice Yamaki guitar for sale?

Thanks, Nick

Re: Yamaki Guitar for sale? Anyone have one?

I have a Yamaki 12-string in good condition. Let me know if you're interested.

Re: Yamaki Guitar for sale? Anyone have one?

: Hi,
: Anyone out there have a nice Yamaki guitar for sale?

: Thanks, Nick

N
I have what I believe to be a Yamaki copy of a martin D-35. Sounds great, three piece back with the middle of the back being maple I think and the sides and rest of the back rosewood. Heavy on the inlay around body and soundhole. Does not say Yamaki anywhere on the guitar but I have narrowed it down this far. Am having someone look at it today to help with the I.D.
Also has hexagonal inlay on the fretboard. E-mail me if you have any questions.

processer vs single effect

I was wondering if i should buy a processer or a single effect to start with ...i play punk and i have a band started, but my dirty channel on my amp isnt cutting it, so i need some suggestions...also, if u pick one, tell which i should buy and give me some tips. Thanks Josh

Re: processer vs single effect

To each their own, but I still like the warm sound of pedals.(easier to use too) Check out a Marshall Jackhammer pedal. It has a wide range of distortion sounds for a lot of styles. About $80.00

Re: processer vs single effect

My advice for a Punk-rocker is to use single(durable) pedals.Most punk-rock doesn't call for a lot of tones.It's mostly about aggression!
I'd say,get a decent dist./OD ,flanger/chorus,delay.If they break,jusy get another one.
Could you imagine spending $500. on a processor,just to have some FAT BASTID spill beer on it??? Fucked up,ain't it??
Good Luck

twangy sound of tele

I have a tele and love it . I want to duplicate twangy sound used by Brad Pasley,etc.

Re: twangy sound of tele

In my opinion the best way to "put some fire" into a tele is putting some Joe Barden pick ups on it. You should also have a good nut (graph tech works well) and good bridge saddles (for me old brass Esquire ones are a good choice. Good luck. Keep pickin'
